Whoops.



pictures or it never happened :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


It's looking better but it won't win any prizes. I'm hoping my unusual colour choices will win those.

This Dunkeld meet better be good as I've wasted 2 days of daylight trying to get a bike ready for the event.

Trek is ready bar the rear brake. Rear brake is a booger though as the cable must take a tortuous route which results in bad stiction thus I'll need to ponder a solution.

Also not the lightest bike even in SS mode but lighter than previous ideas.
Rear flexes sideways and thats normal apparently but so far does not seem as bad a ride as they say but then twice round the blocks not a proper test ride.

That looks great Gazz, still think lime green would have been smart for the decals.

God knows how shiny it's going to be after lacquer. Sadly I missed the bottom of one of the chainstays, bloody idiot.
